Post details of your last run and what you think of it
I've not been on here for a while. I've been having a hard few weeks with both kids starting new schools- the 11 year old at secondary and the 4 year old at primary. Lots of change / emotion added to usual busyness of work, life etc. Running / me time has fallen by the wayside. i only managed to run a couple of times last week but that included another good 11 miles where I felt strong and positive with energy in the tank. Today just a 5k but I'm enjoying that distance ATM. Hopefully things will be a bit easier in the coming week and I can get into some sort of routine again with kids, life, then running. Dig in all, there is some great running going on here from what I've seen
easy run of 9 miles @ 7:50 m/m
4M Fartlek today as easing back into it.Full moon when out very bright !
SR: Cracking 21miler yesterday.
Nice leisurely 10 miles this morning - out the door just after five! Have felt utter rubbish since last Sundays 10k as I got my sons cold and he's been sleeping really badly because of it so we've all just been knackered. Hoped to be able to get back in the groove with a 10 mile LSR on Sunday but after going to the Tockington Tri and being dragged around the shops for hours afterwards by my wife, I had a blinding headache by the time we got home and felt like I could sleep for a week. Early night and woken at four by the baby so I thought - what the hell, lets get this done! Glad I did.
Did 11.9miles LSR yesterday. Than had a dirty big roast and sticky toffee pudding. Good times.

Theres nothing like a good reward after a nice run.
recovery run round Regent's Park and Primrose Hill for 7k at 5.15m/km. feeling good. turned out that the guy who won my 10k on Saturday had been in the Olympic 800metres, so t least i can say I lost to an Oympian!
Just shy of 9 miles on a very odd cross country route yesterday. Took a map, tried to follow some footpaths, got very lost but eventually found my way home.
Feeling fine today so I have just entered the Stroud Half.
just shy of 6 miles yesterday. quite a slow jog. even had to stop a couple of times. went out for 60 mins, hoping to cover nearer 6.5 miles, managed 5.93
i put it down to poor sleep the previous night. or something.
forgot that I spot some decent wildlife - a couple of exotic parrots, in fact, squawking their heads off. but, then again, they were in London Zoo, so doesn't really count.
Entered Stroud on the weekend too. Good luck!
Forced rest day today due to power cut / hot water issues at home - grrr
5 x 1km intervals with a smattering of rest - total 8.1 miles.
5km 'race' with club tonight. Slow time of 18.55 but understandable as hilly and given the 21 miles on Sunday and the hours swim last night.
Tue - 9.00pm - 10km (garmin free)
well into my taper now - easing down on the distance and effort - did a pilates class yesterday - it made me realise how much core strength I am lacking at present - hope to stick with it over the forthcoming weeks in the hope that it will improve my running (posture)
happy running everyone
4M Steadily done today. Okay run.
Good work all and good luck for Sunday cidlad.
6.5miles intervals this morning with 12 x quarter miles at 6:45ish and 2mins jog
Keep it up,
the support is welcome for Sun 14th
ps - good session for you this morning
4.14 miles this early evening. Bit of rain halfway round. Didn't have much in my legs. Think they're heavy from Monday mornings 10 miler.
Feel like I'm getting back into it after a rubbish week last week but I really need to start getting in some off road hill runs soon.
